Various Assundry Things

Pearls and Dreams

I had a friend when I was in high school that used that phrase a lot. "Various Assundry things". I still miss Jeff. He was a unique person. Jeff Moon was his name. He was a big brother (not really, kind of adopted each other). He slept through my high school graduation. :P

I'm wondering if I'm an advertising sucker ... I bought "Wash N Curl Shampoo" ... I'll see tomorrow if it made a difference in my pin straight hair. I sometimes sleep with curlers in my hair and make it curly, but the curls never last. We'll see if this helps.

I've been contemplating my childhood today. To the elementary school teacher (who I'm not going to name, but she's been to this site before) who kept me in at recess because I was writing stories instead of doing my math ... um ... er ... uh ... I told you then, and I'm tellin you now ... I'm gonna be a writer when I grow up! You said when I get my book published you'd apologize to me ... guess what Ms. ***... :D

I think I'm feeling a bit snarky this evening. Snarky is my new word. I have no idea where I got it from.

Tomorrow I am wearing my new suit that I bought last month. It will be too hot for it, but I'm dying to wear it, and the singer who always turns the A/C on in the sanctuary too cold is singing. So, the church will be plenty cool enough to wear it.

Today I did nothing but lay around ... resting. Not sure I did my body much good ...got lots of sulking done. I'm not too keen on doing nothing but resting. I find it annoying. Maybe that's why I'm in a snarky mood.

I find it anoying that the autoimmune body sees excitement the same as it sees stress. It is not fair that good times are greeted by the immune system with the same treatment as bad times. I'm having the best time of my life (at least of recent years) and I'm feeling just as bad. NO FAIR! I want to run and jump and scream and squeal ..and instead I'm being forced to take care of myself. SNARK.

My cats are loving it.
My kids are loving it.

It's just my husband and myself that are having a hard time with it. Snark.

Well ... I'm going to bed so I can make it to church tomorrow. I am planning on going and looking at dishes after church and go out for coffee with him. He deserves it.

Good night!


  1. hope tomorrow is less snarky for you and the suit looks good :D

  2. You looked great today. Your hair, your suit; you were the total picture today! It's ok to be "Snarky' somedays. I like the word. (((PK)))

  3. Thank you! It was fun to dress up. I will definitely use that for my book cover picture. When I go to get my pic taken, I will take both the pink top and the white so I can change and then pick which is better.

  4. Please let us know if that "wash and curl" really works. I don't think you're a sucker for advertising. I'm curious too.

  5. I say "Various and Sundry" all the time! How funny. So if you use the wash and curl shampoo do you still have to curl it, or does the shampoo do it on it's own. You said it stayed curly, but did you put the curls in or did it dry that way?
